Knives are a personal item for Native Americans and all other indigenous people. Native American knives were employed in close quarters fighting or thrown from horseback. Knives were also used for scalping enemies, which became a trademark for some of the Native American tribes. A hunter or warrior would carve a blade from the bone of a large game animal. In order to get a handle one might tie an antler or stick to the base of the blade for a better grip. Many throwing knives were made of one piece which made the balance better and it would be easier to throw more accurately. The blades were made from metal only after the arrival of and interaction with the Spaniards. Until that time, the Native Americans did not know how to forge metal.
